An insult to a person’s intelligence is when someone has the nerve to take your kindness for weakness. Yet, unbeknownst to them, some very kind people are also very strong and wise people who can “smell a rat a mile away”. So how do you prevent yourself from falling victim of being used? Believe them when they show you who they really are and keep a safe distance. Learn to say No when something inside urges you to, all feelings set aside. Hold on to your dignity, yet continue to be thoughtful of others for it is a virtue. Many users are out there with faces and demeanors of innocent lambs with the warped mentality that people are “disposable” just as their daily trash is.
